We’re Hopeless Ramen-Tics: Top 7 Japanese Ramen Spots in Buena Park, CA

Buena Park, CA is home to several authentic ramen shops, with chefs devoted to bringing the flavors of Japan to our destination. From award-winning to local favorites, there’s no shortage of this Japanese soul food throughout the city. To give you an idea of the best places to visit during your trip to Buena Park, we’ve rounded up the Top 7 Japanese Ramen Spots.

Ramen & Tsukemen TAO - 10488 Valley View St, Buena Park, CA 90620
After 10 years of training in Tokyo, Toshimasa Sano, owner and chef of Ramen & Tsukemen TAO, brought his crafted culinary skills to Buena Park in the form of Miso Ramen and Tsukemen. A California MICHELIN® Guide Bib Gourmand, this authentic and unassuming small Japanese restaurant prides itself on a specialty broth that takes 40 hours to prepare. Ramen & Tsukemen TAO can get very busy during peak hours; we highly recommend recommend take-out during these peak times.

Kitakata Ramen Ban Nai - 7550 Orangethorpe Ave E300, Buena Park, CA 90621
Kitakata Ramen is one of the most popular ramen styles in Japan, with its handmade noodles, Chashu pork, and slow simmered pork broth. The first Ban Nai shop opened in Japan in the 1950s, became a staple in northern Japan, and was brought to the U.S. just under a decade ago. Now visitors can enjoy Kitakata Ramen Ban Nai’s popular Green Chili Shio Ramen right here in Buena Park.

Slurpin’ Ramen Bar - 7941 Beach Blvd #G, Buena Park, CA 90620
In Japanese culture, slurping your noodles is a sign of respect to your ramen chef, thus the namesake of Slurpin’ Ramen Bar. This restaurant’s goal was to bring authentic creamy Hakata-style ramen to The OC for all to enjoy. Each bowl of comfort comes with house made noodles and a lengthy list of toppings to craft the perfect meal for you.

Hiro Ramen & Udon - 5252 Beach Blvd, Buena Park, CA 90621
Hiro Ramen & Udon is a cafeteria-style eatery that feels as though you’ve been transported to Japan with its stunning ambiance. Tonkotsu, Pork Rib, Miso, Hiro, Shoyu, and Chicken Ramen are offered, with the ability to make any of them spicy. An extensive list of toppings is available to build the ramen bowl to your liking.
Yoshiharu Ramen - 6970 Beach Blvd F-206, Buena Park, CA 90621

Kobe Gyukatsu specializes in beef katsu but also dedicate themselves to serving up the perfect bowl of ramen.
